And subjunctive! French grammar has all these strictly regulated tenses as well.
As does Latin. smile

Subjunctive is not a tense. It is a mood.

Now that I think about it, texting is getting to be more like Latin. No punctuation and just running words together. You have to know the context of the entire text to know what is being said....
Yup, we just need marble and some chisels! laugh

I know someone that cannot pronounce all of his words correctly to save his life. Pronouncing names is even worse. It can be funny at times, but tends to fall more on the ridiculous side anymore. And his favorite saying "That being said" just drives me nuts!

Vent over. smile
